From May 12 to May 18, residents of Independence will have the chance to enjoy RAGBRAI inspired artwork at the Independence Public Library. The RAGBRAI organization sponsors a Kids’ Art Contest for elementary school students in each overnight host community along their annual route.

Students from several elementary classes created and submitted artwork ranging from marker drawings to clay sculptures. The artists were asked to create a piece of artwork representing the town’s RAGBRAI theme which is “Glowing on the River”.

“It was so much fun to look through all the student artwork. You can tell that many of them put a lot of time and effort into their pieces and it’s a wonderful way to showcase their creativity,” said Jenny Yoder, Indee RAGBRAI Publicity Co-Chair.

The Indee RAGBRAI Publicity Committee will be selecting one overall winner who will have their artwork sent to Des Moines with the RAGBRAI committee in June to be entered into the statewide contest.

Students entered into the statewide contest have the chance to win the grand prize of $350.
